Argument Essay

1106 words - 5 pages

Are you in high school and is it hard for you to stay concentrated throughout the whole school day or is it hard for you to get up in the morning? The reason why you can’t concentrate at school is because we may be starting school too early in the morning.
Most high schools start at around 8:00 in the morning. Since the start time is 8:00am most of the students would have to get up at around 6:00-6:30am in order to make it on time. They have to get up that early because most of the would probably like to shower, have time to get dressed and make final adjustments. Then you have to eat breakfast because that is the most important meal of the day. With all of that, you are talking about an ...view middle of the document...

By being more awake during the day I have noticed that I have been getting better grades on test and homework assignments.
It is also a scientifically proven fact that schools that start later have students who are more ready for the day and their brains are more awake. In Mark
Fischetti’s article, Sleepy Teens, it state that numerous schools that have delayed their start times have shown that academic performances have improved. The bonus points are that the attendance has gone up, teen depression has gone down, and fewer student drivers have gotten into car crashes. If I were in charge of the school, I would change the time by just from the information in this article alone. Just moving the time from 7:30 am to 8:30am is saving student’s lives. It decreases depression then committing suicide and lowering car crashes on the way to school. In Fayette County, which has only one school district crash rates of teens have dropped 16.5 percent in two years after the stat times were delayed one hour. By just starting an hour later, we could be saving our children.
The last and final reason why school starts too early in the morning is that teens are not getting enough sleep at night. "Circadian rhythms dictate that most teenagers can't fall asleep much before 11 p.m.," Dr. Owens said. "And if they need 8½ to 9½ hours of sleep—do the math. They are best suited to wake up around 8 a.m." Teen can’t fall asleep because they are so stressed too. They could have a test the next day and are up studying all night or the teachers could pile on homework so that they are not able to go to sleep early because they only give them one night to complete it. They could also be at a school event where they might have to go hours away and not get back till 9 or 10’oclock at night and then they would have to do their homework when they get home so it would be even...
